    Backup your phone using iTunes. Right click on the device in iTunes and choose backup...and you'll also see a transfer your purchases there as well. To sync the ip4 do the same thing except you will choose restore from backup

    I gave you the instructions on how to backup your 3GS in my previous post. it shouldn't take long, it depends on what you have stored. One thing I forgot to mention is that when you connect your 3GS to your computer you should see a pop up asking you if you want to import your pics. Click yes.
    Once you backup your device, click the restore the device by choosing restore on the iTunes summary. It's located right under the update button. If you're jailbroken you will lose the jailbreak. Once the device has restored and boots back up it will ask you if you want to restore from a backup or start fresh. Choose start fresh and give it to your girlfriend and she'll be able to activate it and start using.

    Go into the iTunes summary and click manually add music and such. Then drag whyever you want from your library to iphone. You're vids should be in movies if you added them to itunes
